Texans' Jadeveon Clowney: Returns fumble for touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clowney had six tackles (all solo), two sacks and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Clowney had a monster first half with four tackles, his first two sacks of the season and the 22-yard fumble return for a touchdown, but the Patriots adjusted at halftime to limit his second half impact. It was the former first-round pick's best performance of the season by far, which he hopes to duplicate against the Titans in Week 4.

Texans' Whitney Mercilus: Logs first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mercilus recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's loss to the Pats to go along with five solo tackles and a forced fumble.

Mercilus' sack of Tom Brady mid-way through the second quarter led to a fumble that was recovered and taken to pay dirt by teammate Jadeveon Clowney. The 27-year-old was one of two Texans' defenders to see the field for all 65 defensive snaps. He will look to carry his momentum into Week 4's tilt against the Titans.

Texans' Will Fuller: May be back for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fuller (collarbone) could return for Week 4 against the Titans, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Fuller was back at practice last week but nonetheless was ruled out long before Sunday's 36-33 loss to the Patriots. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that he's hearing good things about Fuller's prognosis, potentially setting up the speedy wideout for a Week 4 return. Bruce Ellington served as the No. 2 receiver in Sunday's loss, catching four of seven targets for 59 yards ad a touchdown.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Perfect in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn successfully converted four field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks in Houston's 36-33 loss to New England in Week 3.

The Texans had trouble finishing off drives once they got to the red zone, scoring a touchdown once in three trips, which padded Fairbairn's numbers. It was encouraging for his fantasy prospects to see the Houston offense explode in Week 3, after it had scored a total of 20 points the first two weeks. For the season, he's 6-for-6 on field goals and 5-of-5 on extra points for 23 points through three games.

Texans' Tyler Ervin: Plays eight snaps Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin had one carry for four yards and one reception for another four yards in Houston's 36-33 loss to the Patriots in Week 3.

Ervin had stayed relevant on offense while the Texans dealt with multiple injuries to receivers, but as guys came back in Week 3, Ervin's snap count dropped to eight. A game against the high-octane offense of New England looked like it would have suited Ervin, but that was not the case Sunday. He remains involved on special teams as the primary returner, but apparently hasn't gained the confidence of coaches to be a regular weapon on offense.
